Shaeva is shy, but once she gets to know someone she comes more out of her shell. She is passionate and fiery with a sense of humor, but inside she is filled with sadness and longing.
Shaeva is a jinn and also possesses the powers of Mauth. Because she is a jin, she has an unnaturally high body heat that warms everything around her. Shaeva can read the stars to see the future, though she can’t see the whole future like the Augurs can
Mauth gave her additional powers when she became Soul Catcher. She can create invisible walls trapping a person in a place, as well as windwalk which is the physical magic “of speeding through the trees in the blink of an eye” (A Reaper at the Gates). She can, while touching someone, share her knowledge and thoughts with them telepathically.
